$23/liter!! Wow! I think I'll stick to the $11/quart Mobil 1 4T right from Advance Auto.

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.

Sorry once again ,

I had no intention to turn anything into something else , I just thought that threads are made to exchange ideas and get some help (mostly).

The reason I'm looking for an alternative myself is that Mobil 1 racing 4T 10-40 costs ,in my part of the world ,about 18 Euros per litre (that's a steal of about 23.5 $ per how much in Qt. ?!!? ).{at the same price e.x. Mobil Super 2000 X1 SAE 10W-40,car oil,is..}
I also think that people who speak in a convention , that has a S.A.E. discreet , are not ''ordinary no one'' people like me and do not have just another ( ) opinion , but ,

Thnx again.

I wasn't implying that is what you were doing. It's just inevitable, from past threads. Good luck finding yer oil.
